What is the change? Mexican government officials have announced that Instituto Nacional de Migración (INM) offices will be closed only on Dec. 25 and Jan. 1.
What does the change mean? The update provides additional time for immigration processing during the holiday season since immigration offices will only be closed for Christmas and New Year’s Day. However, employers and foreign nationals should note that immigration processing and resolution may be delayed through the beginning of the year due to reduced immigration staff at the INM during this period.
Background: In the days leading up to and following the closures, many offices will reduce their staffs, causing additional delays. Applicants should note that holiday-related delays may be exacerbated by major staff changes at the INM due to the recent transition in government.
Analysis & Comments: Applicants should plan to file any time-sensitive applications as early as possible before Dec. 24 to mitigate delays. Foreign nationals planning travel to Mexico should take note of the travel restrictions and plan their schedules accordingly. Processing delays should be expected in the days after offices reopen.
